September 22

DSC00498Enjoying a breakfast coffee and hot chocolate in the square outside of our apartment in Arcos de la Frontera.  Breakfast for the locals was a coffee and ham sandwich, so we opted for just the coffee and hot chocolate part!  Mmmm.

As for the ham part, I’ve never seen so much in my life.  EVERY place has at least one leg that they’re carving from and most places have more than a few hanging around waiting to be eaten, hooves intact.  However, on the plus side of the eating in Spain equation, the olive and pickles are as ubiquitious as the ham and fun to try in their many versions.  Our favorite was a spear sporting a piece of pickled onion, carrot, pickle, pepper and olive.  Yum.
